No more COVID testing at Hurtigruten Expeditions, except for Antarctica

Pre-embarkation COVID-19 testing is still required for Antarctica expeditions. Here, Roald Amundsen
Hurtigruten Expeditions ended COVID-19 pre-departure testing, apart from Antarctica.

For Antarctica passengers must still provide a proof of a negative COVID-19 test to embark.

Line will arrange testing

The line will arrange tests for all passengers during the transfer from either Santiago, Chile, or Buenos Aires, Argentina. Cruise-only customers in Antarctica who travel to Ushuaia or Punta Arenas independently must arrange for their own test within 72 hours before embarking.

Destinations' rules still apply

Testing and vaccination requirements may differ for certain destinations based on local regulations.

Masks are no longer mandatory onboard or during landings and land adventures, but passengers are still encouraged to wear masks in public areas on board all ships.

Vaccination still required

Hurtigruten Expeditions will still require proof of full vaccination with a WHO-vaccine prior to embarkation on all voyages. This applies to all travelers 12 and older. Although recommended, a booster dose is no longer required.

Crew members across all ships are fully vaccinated.
